Fruth Pharmacy Scholarship Fund

Jack and “Babs” Fruth believed in education and founded many scholarships to help provide educational opportunities for those who might not have otherwise been able to pursue higher education.

After educating their five children, the Fruth family began to establish scholarships in 1986 to help other young people. Over the years, additional scholarships were created.

Today, 25 students a year benefit from the Fruth Pharmacy and Fruth Family Scholarships at Marshall University, Marshall University MOVC, West Virginia University School of Pharmacy, University of Charleston School of Pharmacy, Ohio State University School of Pharmacy and University of Rio Grande as well as many other scholarships that are not specific to a certain college or university.
